Living in Orange Houses

Oozing Charm

Møllestien, Street of Charming, Painted Houses, Aarhus, Denmark

Møllestien (the mill lane) is an ancient street in the center of Aarhus, with origins dating back to the time of the Vikings.  Today’s Møllestien, with its small houses and cobblestone pavement, showcases 19th-century working class housing. It is regarded by many as the most beautiful street in Aarhus.  The area suffered a serious decline beginning in the 1920s, and by 1960 had become abandoned and derelict.  Plans to demolish the entire area were revised when artists and students renovated a short section of the street and painted the houses vibrant colors. Most of the existing houses were built between 1870 and 1885. Several of the houses can be rented by the night. Møllestien is in all the guidebooks. I found it a bit difficult to locate.

Lovely Light Green

Any identification for this tree? I loved the colors but have no idea what it is. Photo taken in Spain in the spring.

The Music Men (and Women)

March On

I saw this band one evening near Rossio Square (Praça do Rossio, also known as Praça de D. Pedro IV). It was part of a small procession just getting ready to set off. The group was led by a young woman carrying flags and banners and an older woman. I have no idea what or who they were commemorating. If anyone does, let me know. Shortly after these pictures were taken, the group began walking north, destination unknown.
